Editor's NoteAfter his father's death, young Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) leaves his home in the Snowy River valley to work for a wealthy landlord, who happens to be the estranged twin brother of Jim's mentor, a grizzled old prospector (both twins are played by Kirk Douglas). While fighting to earn his spurs by breaking a herd of wild horses, Jim falls in love with his employer's spunky daughter, Jessica (Sigrid Thornton). When one of the horses escapes and the blame falls on Jim, the boy must return to the Australian hills where he grew up, in order to find the horse and come back a man.

Customer Reviews of Man From Snowy River (Blu-ray)
This movie is one of my all time favorites, so I'm glad to have it on blu ray. The theme of the boy becoming a man and proving himself, and being heroic in the process is one that truly resonates. And, all the while doing the right thing -- something all too rare are these days, both in life and in film.
